Users can now search for authors on Scholars Portal Journals by their ORCID identifier.

Simply enter the number into the search box and select “ORCID iD” from the dropdown menu.  The green iD icon appears by the names of authors associated with ORCID identifiers.  Clicking on the icon will take you to the author’s public ORCID record.

You can be notified when a new article associated with an ORCID iD is loaded to Journals by creating an email alert based on an ORCID search.  

ORCID is a not-for-profit organization that provides a unique identifier for authors to link their research production.  Find out more at:

ORCID information is provided to Scholars Portal by journal publishers.  Currently, only a tiny fraction of the forty-five million articles on Scholars Portal Journals are associated with ORCID iDs, but we expect to see this number grow as more researchers adopt this identifier and more publishers include it with their article-level metadata.  Scholars Portal is also considering how standardized identifiers can be integrated into other systems in support of research production.
